Showers Of Doom - Poem by ARSHAJ GAIKWAD

Sudden winds with mighty wings,
Flying over are dying hints,
They churned the world to a crimson gloom,
I think they’ll end our misery soon,
So subtly they struck the
Showers of doom..

When the light of this planet,
Was born, took a leap,
It crushed beneath it,
All the life in a heap.
Just a heap that we see,
In its concrete depths
What we failed to believe
That our mother earth wept.

But the clouds in vengeance
Dried all their tears
And so was left of her,
Dried & dead we feared.
As the seas and oceans
Now yelled at the shores,
A look of fury,
Every wave, it wore.

A great tongue of water & salt
Reduced the concrete to junk
With no moments to sob.
Just a rumble of the waves
The living could hear
And the stench of the dead
Everywhere so near.

This is just the beginning
And we know what’s the end
So lets stop right here
Or take the next bend.
Lets plant her once again
Leave no stone unturned
May take pity on us
Shall the fury return…!
